With a statement like that, I can only assume your collection contains very high end Seikos—because only 8L Seikos, 9S, 9R and 9F Grand Seikos are completely made in Japan.If only they weren’t made in China...
Overall a generally unhelpful post by me I suppose. Not trying to offend, but if you were I’m at a loss. I like these watches. I just wish they were made elsewhere. And for expressing my opinion you would suggest the right course of action is to ignore me? I thought this was a place to discuss the watches, our likes and dislikes. Shutting out differing opinions creates an echo chamber and we’re worse for it.Pretty amazing how the ignore feature works on the forum.

Grand Seiko Arnie Reissue would be bold, though I'm pretty sure you'd replace"…made in China…" with "…so expensive…"
I might actually buy one if it were a Spring Drive Ani-Digi cause it'd be crazy cool and crazy expensive.
Thanks for your explanation. I think your one liner came off trollish without the details, thus the blowback.I’m just extraordinarily disappointed at the extent to which everything seems to be made there. It’s a feeling of fatigue and exasperation built up since I was younger when my tools, clothes, and etc. were all made in the States. And then I became aware of politics, into which I won’t delve here. Suffice to say I would rather support other countries with my meager dollars.
Enough of that. These Arnies need a CDT! But I like em anyway.
A lot of the stuff made in Italy and Europe is now made by imported Chinese workers in factories and plants that were formerly crewed by citizens of that particular country. China can and does make some pretty decent stuff, actually. Remember, Japan and Hong Kong made stuff used to be looked at with disdain in the 50's and 60's. I'm far from being a China Fanboi, I'm just calling it the way it is.The IPhone is made in China and people are queuing up for them lol.
